I made Taos Pitcher 80 oz on the potter’s wheel from stoneware clay. I pulled the handle directly from the pot and added a thumb stop for comfort and leverage. It has a classic shape, good proportions, with a pedestal foot. Stands 10” high.
The ‘Taos’ glaze is a technique of pouring and dipping blue, green, cream, and gold glazes. The overlapping layers often produces a surface reminiscent of the colors in the landscape of Northern New Mexico: blue skies with puffy clouds, green pines, and sunshine!
I pulled the spout from the neck and added a thumb stop for comfort and leverage. It pours smoothly.
Taos Pitcher 80 oz was fired to 2200 degrees F serve up hot as well as cold beverages. Stoneware pottery holds the temperature of its contents better than poured commercial slip ware.
Use the pitcher for a flower vase. Dishwasher safe.
